A ditzy American girl visiting Monte Carlo is hired by a tennis champ to be his "cardboard lover"--to pretend to be in love with him so he can teach his two-timing fiancé a lesson and win her back. What he doesn't realize is that the girl isn't pretending--she actually is in love with him, and she sets out to win him for herself.
Broadway Shook With Laughter For Months at the Play! The Film is even funnier. And beautiful Marion Davies is just grand as the girl who gambles with love at Monte Carlo- where men are men, and women are after them. (Print Ad-Meriden Daily Journal, ((Meriden, Conn.)) 22 August 1928)
